Russia – Croatia. Konstantin Genich’s prediction
Konstantin Genich, a football commentator at the Russian Match TV channel and a former professional football player, gives his view on upcoming friendly fixture between Russia and Croatia.
Russia are to play their second friendly, now against Croatia in Rostov-on-Don. And there will be a different first 11 as Leonid Slutsky said after the game vs Portugal (1-0). It may bring a little of unbalance to their game. They left very good impression vs Portugal. All key figures chosen by Slutsky showed their efficiency. The team was very solid and they scored a beautiful goal. Now some other players will get a chance.
As we know Croatia will not bring their key players. Some of them are missing. There will be no Luca Modric and this is a big blow for Croatia. But there are others who can eat the dirt and bring the result in this game. New Russian squad will allow Croatia to play in aggressive style in this game. But as we know, Russians don’t concede much and don’t score much under Slutsky as they’re very good defensively. But now they’ll have new faces in defense, and this is a good chance to back on goals. Croatia are very nice in attack. Russians will go forward at support of Rostov fans. When we can bet on ‘both teams to score’ in a friendly with odds higher than 2.0, we can’t miss that. Now we have 2.12 on both teams to score.
